PE is seen as Physical Literacy and used as a tool for embedding our school values: Emotional Intelligence, Motivation, Efficacy, Resilience, Grit and Enthusiasm. We believe that PE develops children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they perform with competence and confidence in a range of physical activities and have the resilience to succeed. Physical Education is taught through a thematic approach which focuses upon the whole child and the fundamentals of movement that underpin all physical success.  In addition to this, discrete activities are taught. PE promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking; selecting and applying skills; it promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. This enables the children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

Our latest P.E Inter-School Competition Report...

What a year so far, our children have been incredible!  We have entered teams in a record number of events so far this year and had some of our best results in recent times.
Our Year 1&2 children entered the Multi-skills event as a whole class and had a wonderful afternoon representing the school.  The Football Team have won three of their five league matches and strong performances from Thomas in Goal, Alice in defence and Ava and Jayce in mid-field have given us a great year.   This years' Cross Country event saw a record number of Mithian children participating; one quarter of the school entered and raced with great resilience and determination- many of our children achieved top 20 positions, but particular congratulations to Ava, Alice and Ted who have qualified for the Peninsular Finals. This year has seen our first entry into the Lord Tavener Table Cricket competition. Eight of our children have participated in weekly sessions with David from Cornwall Cricket and competed incredibly well at the Peninsular finals - placing third in their first competition.
The Year 3 and 4 children experienced Sportshall Athletics for the first time and placed third, while they also enjoyed participating in the Badminton Festival at Richard Lander. The Y5 and 6 Basketball team placed 5th from 12 teams at the Richard Lander Basketball tournament.  The KS2 children have been enjoying  games sessions and Basketball Club with Will from DT Coaching this term.  We look forward to the rest of this year and the different opportunities sports and activities that the children will participate in.
